Lawsuit: Bard officials knew of flawed plastic in some vaginal-mesh devices.

Bloomberg News (7/10, Feeley) reports that vaginal-mesh manufacturer CR Bard Inc. “officials knew some of the company’s vaginal-mesh devices were made of a plastic deemed unsuitable for human implantation and hid that flaw from doctors and women who used the products, a lawyer said.” According to attorney Henry Garrard, Bard officials made the implants “out of plastic that carried a warning saying it shouldn’t be permanently implanted in people.” Murray Hill, NJ-based Bard “faces at least 3,600 claims over its Avaulta Plus vaginal mesh.”
